Getting started

The Accu-Chek Connect app is available for Apple and Android devices. To receive information from the Accu-Chek Aviva Connect meter, the app must be installed on a compatible device. See if your device is compatible.

While the Accu-Chek Connect app is not designed specifically for larger screens, most will scale up automatically. On an iPad, you can view the app in 2X mode.

Accu-Chek Guide Me, Accu-Chek Guide and Accu-Chek Aviva Connect meters are available at Walgreens and other retailers, or through your healthcare professional.

You can download the free Accu-Chek Connect app from Google Play or the Apple App Store. And you can create an online account through the app or by going directly to the Accu-Chek Connect online portal. You'll also need to work with a member of your healthcare team to set up the insulin calculator within the app, to ensure that all the personal insulin settings are correct.

Only the Accu-Chek Guide Me, Accu-Chek Guide and Accu-Chek Aviva Connect meters currently offer the wireless capability needed to transmit data directly to the Accu-Chek Connect app. However, you can enter data into the app manually or transfer data from other Accu-Chek meters into the Accu-Chek Connect online portal. That way, your data can be reviewed in helpful charts and graphs and shared with your healthcare team.

General questions

Wireless Accu-Chek meters use low-energy Bluetooth technology, an advance in wireless communication that is ideal for situations in which the wireless signal only has to travel a short distance. Created for devices that need to run off a tiny battery for long periods, Bluetooth technology is used in activity trackers, heart rate monitors, sound amplifiers that act as an alternative to hearing aids and more.

Absolutely. The Accu-Chek Connect system uses data encryption to keep all your information secure. What's more, you decide what information to share with others, such as your healthcare team. 

Insulin calculation and special features

The Accu-Chek Bolus Advisor is a prescription insulin calculator built into the Accu-Chek Connect app. The system must be configured by a healthcare professional to include the user's insulin-to-carbohydrate ratio, blood glucose target ranges and insulin sensitivity factor. Once set up, the advisor provides personalized dosing advice based on the user's current blood glucose level, carbs about to be consumed and any active insulin already in the body.
